Pluto Shervington’s first hit

STORY OF THE SONG: ‘Ram Goat Liver’ makes mannish water …And Pluto Shervington’s first hit

In 1974, while Ernie Smith was on his way to the Federal Records (now Tuff Gong) on Marcus Garvey Drive, Kingston, he saw an accident. When he got to the studio he told Pluto Shervington about it. By the end of the week, Shervington had recorded a song based on the story. That song took off immediately and, 35 years later, is one of the enduring classics of Jamaican music.
